"Christina Stead has the fullness of tragedy, with its glorious peaks and dismal abysses. It is a model of clarity. Ms. Rowley's shrewd selectivity and handling of anecdote makes the book compellingly readable. "Rowley's interpretation of the novels and their creator is, for the most part, thoroughly persuasive. Her tracing of what she calls 'Stead's shadow self' from her unhappy childhood through the crucible of her fiction to the final shambles of her later years gives the biography a vigorous and unnerving momentum, reminiscent of Stead's own fiction. Christina Stead is everything a literary biography should be." Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Biography & Autobiography; Australia; ISBN: 1863303774.
